HLO recruiting for public members for several boards

Wednesday, March 08, 2017

Are you interested in getting involved with state service but unsure where to begin? Consider serving on one of Health Licensing Office's regulatory boards. You don't have to be a member of one of the regulated professions to serve. In fact, many of the openings are for public members. A public member is typically someone who represents a consumer's point of view (and has no conflicts of interest in the board's business).

Serving on a volunteer citizen board is a great way to dip a toe into the waters of state service. Board members participate in the rulemaking process, helping enact the laws adopted by the legislature and getting a better sense of how government works on the state level.

The Health Licensing Office has nine public member openings available at this time: one on the Nursing Home Administrators Board, one on the Board of Athletic Trainers, one on the Board of Certified Advanced Estheticians, one on the Board of Cosmetology, two on the Board of Denture Technology, one on the Board of Electrologists and Body Art Practitioners, one on the Board of Licensed Dietitians and one on the Respiratory Therapist and Polysomnographic Technologist Licensing Board.

The HLO encourages candidates to apply but does not administer the appointment process.

Appointment to a board of an HLO-regulated profession is made by the Governor's Office of Executive Appointments, as are appointments for approximately 200 other state boards.

The office continuously recruits qualified applicants, who undergo a thorough background and reference check before being recommended for appointment.

To apply, complete anapplication/interest form from the Governor's Office of Executive Appointments and submit it to:

Executive Appointments, Office of the Governor
900 Court St. NE Room 160, Salem, OR 97301-4047
Phone: (503) 378-3123 // Executive Appointments Private Fax (503) 373-0840
